travel map

The travel map shows all countries/places where I have lived (in red) or visited (in green). One of my biggest passions is traveling and I hope to explore and see as much of the world as possible during my lifetime. Click on highlighted/underlined country names to see related blog posts and photos.

So far, I’ve been fortunate enough to have visited all 7 continents. I have been to 57 countries and 6 other “places”  (Antarctica, the Cayman Islands, Hong Kong, Macau, Turks and Caicos Islands, and the West Bank in Palestine).

I have also lived in 9 countries: Brazil, Canada (my country of birth and current home), Colombia, Haiti, Kenya, Malawi, Turks and Caicos Islands, United Arab Emirates and the United States.

The most recent new country I have been to is Andorra in June 2017.

  1. Hi, Ryan,

    While I have only lived in the U.S., I have traveled the world during the past thirty years. Now I am passing that love onto my grandchildren by taking them anywhere in the world they choose at the age of twelve. My third grandson has selected Brazil because he wants to see the Amazon and attend a World Cup game in 2014. Since you have lived in Brazil, I’m wondering if you think that would be a safe trip?? I’ve seen gorillas in the wild, etc, so I am an adventure traveler, but I’ve heard stories about the zeal of soccer fans in South America. Sould I be worried? Thanks for your input.

  2. Hi Teri,

    Wow, that sounds like so much fun! Your grandchildren are very lucky to have you. :)

    Its been seven years since I last attended a game in Brazil so I checked with some friends. You should avoid matches between local teams such as Corinthians v. Palmeiras or Flamengo v Botafogo, which often have clashes between fans. But most of my Brazilian friends encouraged you to feel comfortable attending World Cup matches with your grandson. Officials are working hard to ensure it will be well-organised, secure and safe. Keep your eyes and ears open and avoid wearing expensive or fancy-looking accessories. Traffic and transit chaos is likely to be the worst of it. Also, here is an article by a source who appears quite well-informed.

    Brazilian football/soccer fans are indeed a crazy bunch. Their enthusiasm and raucousness is infectious and is part of what makes it so much fun! I suspect that’s part of what he is looking forward to. And of course, you should both be cheering for Brazil!

    As for the Amazon, I have never done it myself but it is on my short list. The range of options runs from the extremely basic to the ultra-luxurious and your tour guide will be a great source of information for preparing in advance. Some choices include what city/country you want to start from, whether you want to sleep on the boat or on land, and what type of sleeping arrangement you want! A hammock or a bed? Indoors or out? A mosquito net is essential!

    Happy travels! :)

  3. what can i say…wow! hope you can squeeze in some time for Zim since you nearby in Malawi…interesting and lovely country despite all hearsay :)

  4. Glad to see there are others out there who love travel, and do so with purpose. I was fortunate enough to recently go to my 108th country/”place” and will be spending this upcoming May in Ghana doing research….can’t wait :)

    I’ll ask the question that everyone always asks me (one for which I rarely have an answer). What’s your favorite country/place so far?
